Are you using the right color for your website or blog? Did you know that too much of one color causes a person to leave your site? The most used colors for websites and the message they convey are Blue... Represents Trust, loyalty and honesty. "Cerulean Blue" is Americas favorite color. But be carefull when using this color because too much of it is associated with depression. It is best used with an accent color. Green...The most restful on the eye. Represents life, growth, energy, faith, health and of course MONEY Red...The strongest color. Associated with danger, passion, power, energy and excitement. Should only be used as an accent color. NEVER as a background color. Yellow...Brightest color. Associated with sunshine,happiness, hunger (yes, yellow makes you want to eat) Used to highlight text that you think is important to the reader. Like red it should only be used as an accent color. Black...Represents Strength, focus, power, class and determination. First choice for text color. Never use black as a background color, especially on a sales page with white text. Purple...Represents leadership, respect, wealth (even more so when used with Gold) It symbolizes creativity and ideas. Have a productive day! Kowgirl
